AirAsia Reinstates Kota Kinabalu – Taipei Flights


AirAsia, the World’s best Low Cost Airline for 13 years in a row, resumed its much sought-after direct route to Kota Kinabalu from Taipei on 10 December with an exciting activation at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA). Flight AK1511 from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) landed at KKIA and was greeted with a welcoming ceremony as well as a water cannon salute to celebrate the long-awaited resumption of this route.

This comes after Taipei reopened its borders to international travellers and lifted its mandatory COVID-19 quarantine restrictions for arrivals.

With the reinstatement of the Kota Kinabalu-Taipei route, the total international direct air connectivity to Sabah with AirAsia has increased to 4 cities around Asia which are Taipei, Singapore, Manila and Bangkok.

Kota Kinabalu has always been an immensely popular destination in East Malaysia. With this resumption, visitors from Taipei can explore the beauty and wonder of the city, such as the pristine Tanjung Aru Beach or the scenic Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, two of the state’s most sought after attractions for Taiwanese travellers.
